Jonah Hill Flops As A Stand Up

After touring with Seth Rogen trying his hand at stand up comedy for role research for his upcoming film, Jonah Hill abandons the stage for good:

Hill admits his dreams of becoming a regular stand-up were crushed by watching Rogen’s comedy routine kill crowds with laughter while he got heckled on stage.

He says, “I never done stand-up comedy before… When they recognize you from a movie or something you get a free five minutes when they’re excited to see you. And then after that if you suck, you just suck, which I did. I would go with Seth a lot, who was really good because he did stand up a lot when he was younger. And I don’t think anything gives Seth Rogen more joy in the entire world – not the idea of love, or birds in the sky, or eternal happiness – more than him watching me tank on stage. He was the only laugh in the room at the time.”
